American automotive major Ford Motor Company has decided to close down its two-car plants in Chennai and Sanand, owned by its subsidiary Ford India Private Ltd, resulting in an uncertain future for about 4,800 employees – workers and staff, said a Union official.

“The company has decided to close down its two Indian plants. The management has not spoken to us about our future. Maybe on Monday, the officials will hold talks with us,” a union official, speaking on condition of anonymity, told IANS.

In a statement issued on Thursday, Ford India said it will wind down vehicle assembly in Sanand by the fourth quarter of 2021 and vehicle and engine manufacturing in Chennai by the second quarter of 2022.

The company said it had accumulated more than $2 billion operating losses over the past 10 years and a $0.8 billion non-operating write-down of assets in 2019.

As to the future of the two plants – whether it would be sold or leased to some other company, an official told IANS that discussions are going on with other automotive players but a final outcome is not known.

The Tamil Nadu government attracted Ford India decades back with attractive tax incentives which became a trend across the country.
